- NARCISSUS 'Van Sion' also known as 'Telamonious Plenus' is exceptionally tough. It multiplies where many other daffodils can't even survive.
- Daffodils contain the alkaloid lycorine which makes them unpalatable and even poisonous to deer and rodents.
April grew up roaming the hills of Tennessee and has always had a love of nature, especially flowering plants, shrubs and trees. Though the plants she grew up with are nearest and dearest to her heart, she also loves history, art and travel and has visited many gardens and parks in other parts of the world. Her favorite souvenir from those journeys has always been bringing back new ideas to try out in her own garden in Tennessee.
